City to Honor COVID-19 Victims with Lighting of the Harbor Bridge

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX - The Harbor Bridge will shine bright in honor of those touched by COVID-19 tonight, January 21. From the Empire State Building to the Lincoln Memorial, the City joins the nation as we pause to reflect on and memorialize those we have lost.

The iconic bridge will be lit in amber to grieve the victims and families and pray for healing. To date, more than 33,000 Texans have died from COVID-19 and over 600 Nueces County residents.

'Our City joins the nation in remembering the lives lost to COVID-19. We pray for the residents we have lost and grieve with the families missing their loved ones,' said Mayor Paulette Guajardo.

You can see the bridge lit up this evening, Thursday, January 21, at sunset. The Harbor Bridge lights have been lit in many different colors over the years, most recently in support of the work of medical personnel and first responders during the COVID-19 pandemic.
